Role of 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT in Insulinoma According to 3 Different Contexts: A Retrospective Study

Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the performance of 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT in the detection and extension of insulinomas according to 3 different contexts: sporadic benign, sporadic metastatic, and multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1). Patients and methods: The data of 71 adult patients who underwent 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT for suspected or confirmed sporadic insulinoma, suspicion of insulinoma in the context of MEN1, follow-up of metastatic insulinoma, or suspicion of recurrence of insulinoma were retrospectively analyzed. Pathological examination or strong clinical and biological findings were used as standards of truth. Results: For the assessment of a confirmed sporadic insulinoma in 17 patients, the sensitivity of SR-PET was 75%, including 2 patients for whom metastatic lesions had been revealed by SR-PET. For 35 patients with a suspicion of insulinoma, the sensitivity was 39%. In 10 patients followed up for metastatic insulinoma, the sensitivity was 100%. For 5 patients with a history of MEN1, interpretation of SR-PET was difficult, as 3 of them presented with multiple pancreatic uptake foci. The global sensitivity of SR-PET in all insulinomas excluding those with a MEN1 story was 64% (100% for metastatic insulinomas, 62% for benign insulinomas), with a specificity of 89%. Conclusions: 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT is a useful examination tool for the assessment of insulinomas in selected contexts, with very high performance for the detection and extension workup of metastatic insulinomas and high specificity for the detection of sporadic benign insulinomas. The examination should be completed with GLP-1 receptor PET when it is negative or in a MEN1 context.
